I all, I am trying to figure out this computer, Win 2000. When I want to set a picture to the desktop background, it displays 2 of them. When I turn off active desktop and use an image that came with Windows, it works fine 1 picture, as soon as I browse for a picture then use it for the background, it asks me to enable active desktop. Then 2 pictures. What is going on?

I think by 2 pictures you mean, tiled display. The pictures is shown twice on your screen.
In background properties window, you will be able to customize the layout of their image by selecting Center, Tile, or Stretch.
If a picture is smaller than your screen size, you may select Stretch to fit it on your desktop.

Active desktop is used to set non BMP images as wallpepr like JPEG, GIF etc. If you have any problem with Active Desktop, you can always convert JPEG image into BMP to use it when Active Desktop is turned off. Actually many Image viewer apps (like IrfanView) do it automatically, when you view a picture and select set it a wallpaper.

It happens when the image is stretched or centered. it doesn't matter if the image is one from the internet, taken with a camera.......doesn't matter what format it is.
